...especially if you've spent the past six months criticizing them non-stop. Gulp.

Thankfully, it's completely innocent. Back in April when The Weather Channel and DirecTV made amends after their ugly public fight, the weather behemoth offered to send viewers a gift as a token of their appreciation.

The gift they sent out to their viewers was a signed picture of Jim Cantore and a note that reads:

Dear viewer,

For more than 30 years we have been dedicated to providing the best in weather reporting to keep you and your love ones safe. Please accept this gift as a token of our appreciation for your loyalty to The Weather Channel. We thank you for your support.

David Kenny

Chairman & CEO

The Weather Company

That was nice of them. And I sincerely hope that Jim Cantore actually puts a little hurricane symbol in his signature.
